Recently I started taking part in several writing prompt challenges to help my own writing out. You may have read one of my 13 Week Streak stories, or something I dreamed up from a prompt at Be Kind Rewrite.
An unexpected benefit of taking part in these challenges has been the number of great stories I’ve read by other writers doing the same thing.
That’s what this (hopefully) weekly post will be about. I’ll choose one of my favorite stories from the prompts I took part in and share the link and my comments about it here. In this way, I hope to get your eyes on a new writer you may not have met yet and encourage them to keep on trucking.
This writing life is hard. Positive comments help.
Of course, the title is a misnomer of sorts; the post will actually be for the week prior, which in this case is June 25 – July 1.
So, without further introduction, here’s the first story of the week.
Careful not to read my comments before you read the story; spoilers may lurk within. You’ve been warned.
This story was sweet, it was sad, and it was really well-written.
The love story was a great one, even though we only got a few moments of it, and the end was a fitting one.
If you read all this way and didn’t read the story first, shame on you – but go read it now. You won’t regret it.
